Putzmeister’s new truck-mounted concrete pump showcased at Bauma

A new truck-mounted concrete pump was presented by Putzmeister at Bauma, which took place in Munich in April.

Named BSF 47-5, the new truck features a five-arm placing boom mounted on a four-axle chassis and weighs less than 32t, including the reserves for payload, water, fuel and other functional fluids. It is one of the most lightweight machines in its class, says Putzmeister.

The flexible five-arm boom with the roll-Z fold system has excellent slip characteristics; it can be deployed quickly and makes optimal use of the available space, thanks to its new flexible support, a base structure that follows the new I-frame concept. An 800l water tank can be easily attached to it.

Vibrations in the boom remain at a low level, achieved through an intelligent laying of the delivery line and a balanced progression of stiffness in the steel structure. The concrete distribution is then safer and more efficient.

In addition, the machine operator is provided with an image of the working area live on display of the remote control. The improved S transfer tube bearing, the heart of the machine, has a delivery rate of up to 160m³/h.

The Ergonic 2.0 control system, an upgraded version of the Ergonic Boom Control system (EBC) used to control the placing boom, was also presented to the public in the trade show.

The truck’s operation costs have been reduced, as its components are highly resistant with some being maintenance-free.
